Once upon a time I was a journalism major at a small junior college in Southern Colorado. I was trained to use a twin lens Roliflex to take photos of events I covered and for the college yearbook. I was also taught to use the darkroom. All our photography was done in black and white, and it was a real creative thrill to catch a good photo in black and white. With rich texuture, good shades of gray. Even now, I like to play with the digital photos I take and try them out in black and white.
